HAPPY BIRTHDAY for SUNDAY, June 23, 2013: This year you often will have to deal with two opposing concerns, people or situations. Instead of viewing them as opposites, look at what they represent, and you’ll see that the extremes are different manifestations of the same issue. If single, you could be confronted by quite a diverse set of suitors. If attached, you’ll regain a lot of the intensity you’d originally experienced as a couple. Capricorn is nothing less than efficient. A baby born today has a sun in Cancer and a moon in Sagittarius if born before 1:06 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Capricorn.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might note an increase in intensity as the day goes on. You suddenly will notice how others seem to have to tap into your energy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Enjoy a loved one in the morning. In the afternoon, calls could come in. You might be planning a vacation or an upcoming day trip when all this occurs.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Others want your company, no matter what you choose to do. You might feel as if you need to clone yourself! By afternoon, someone clearly needs your time and attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Others seem very challenging. You might wonder why you are putting up with this behavior. The attention you receive might be nice, but you could feel overwhelmed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Your childlike personality emerges. You simply cannot get enough of those around you. The afternoon presents you with a set of responsibilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You must check in on a parent in the morning. The Full Moon in the afternoon will be a relief, because it encourages you to let off steam and play hard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Make calls to people you rarely have time to speak with. You will love catching up, and you also can count on hearing some surprising news.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Take a close look at your budget, then balance your checkbook. Make sure that you have more than enough funds.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Use the morning for your pleasure. Go off and play tennis if you want, or meet loved ones for a late brunch. Choose what appeals to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Pressure builds in the morning. You might choose to say little, but later in the day you could feel as if you have no choice but to speak your mind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Use the morning for anything you feel you must do. Considering how much you have on your plate, you might want to veg a little.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Catch up on a friend’s news in the morning. Perhaps a get-together with this person is in order. As the afternoon approaches, you might feel as if you have to juggle different concerns.
